From some reading up it looks like you can't wake up the HDR remotely because the ethernet port isn't active when the HDR is in standby. If I'd known that a while ago I may not have bought an HD to go in the bedroom (the HDR is in the lounge). The main reason I did buy it was to get a better quality of picture upstairs as the previous pvr in the lounge was connected to upstairs via coax, although it is split a few times, so the picture quality isn't the best. Anyway, what method do people use to wake up the HDR so it can be viewed by the HD, aside from the obvious - go and turn it on by hand in the room it's in! thanks, Owen.
